Smart Carpet Team Portrait

About SMART Carpet Cleaning

It has been said great opportunities exist when problems are solved. Smart Carpet Cleaning has completely solved the many well known problems of the traditional steam carpet cleaning method: Many hours of drying, spots coming back, looks clean for only a short time, foul smells, and many others. Smart’s proprietary and Certified Deep Cleaning System* eliminates ALL these negatives. By using 90% less water than steam cleaning, we preserve the carpet backing and save the carpet pad from getting soaked; eliminating the long dry time and the environment for mold and bacteria to form.

Our method of growth is to target industry specific commercial customers with a free Demo offer so they can see and judge for themselves if we are really THAT much better. See photos of our quality work!

This approach, along with a highly competitive quote, has resulted in our phenomenal 56%** demo-to-sale close rate that will allow you to build up your business rapidly.

Our Employee App allows employees to quickly close work orders on the go, making productive use of down time while driving to another job. Our customer Widget tool provides frequent-use customers an easy method to submit new work orders directly into your software, eliminating the time consuming over-the-phone method.

Taking the Busy-ness Out of Business: SMART’S streamlined software sets you up for success with a robust fully customized Salesforce CRM system. Manage your entire business with one platform, including a user-friendly app for your employees on the job.
Smart Carpet icon
Own a Business Without Having to Own a Storefront: Most franchises require a large investment because you have to lease and build a storefront. SMART franchises are designed to be home based, making this investment more achievable and you see quicker returns.
Smart Carpet icon
Keeping it Simple and Smart. Virtually all other carpet cleaning companies have add-on services like upholstery, tile, or duct cleaning to provide additional revenue streams for their business model. The problem is it adds costs, complications, and you don’t really get to be exceptional in any area. SMART cleans carpet – and nothing else. We don’t complicate the business model because our process and business model is THAT MUCH BETTER! This simplicity frees up time, allowing you to spend more time on what you want to do – Grow Your Business!

Testimonials

Chuck Zitting


"Have used them multiple times each year over the last 6 or 7 years to ready my rental homes between tenants. The normal cleaning jobs always have an outstanding result. In some of the worst cases, they have performed miracles which extended the life of my carpets. Not having to replace carpet is a huge advantage to my bottom line. Also their method allows much quicker move in, important when the new tenant is on standby to start moving in. Beautiful results without the wet, stinky drying times required by other cleaning companies. I use them exclusively and plan to continue."
 

Michele Gerbitz


"I love this company!! Not only are they there if I have an emergency but they have saved our owners a lot of money by not having to replace carpets. They make the carpets look as good as new every time!!"
 

Kathy Holscher


"Truly the best carpet cleaning service! I didn't want to deal with "wet" carpets and hours of letting them dry before I could let the dog in. When I read up on the service that Smart Carpet Cleaning offered, I figured I'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did! They were professional and did a fantastic job. The carpets were so clean and smelled heavenly. The best part, no wet carpets! I won't hesitate to use them again and I highly recommend them."
 

Kristi Toler


"As the Housekeeping Director, I used Smart Carpet for our carpet needs at The Hillcrest of Loveland for a couple of years and was never disappointed. Great price for great service. I only stopped using them because we got bought out by another company and started doing our own carpets. I miss working with them and refer them whenever possible."
 

Tanager Management


"Excellent work, carpets come out extremely clean. The scheduling widget makes scheduling carpet cleaning a breeze. I never have to wonder about the status of a job, I just log into my account & I can see the updated status at anytime. I've attached some before & after photos from 2 of the jobs they did. I would highly recommend them. Oh! And the black light inspection for pet urine damage is invaluable & very affordable. Great for management companies with pet friendly units. Every employee I have interacted with to date has been extremely professional & friendly. Try them out, you won't regret it."
 

Cheryl Davis


"This company is awesome! They are so easy to schedule with, and they do an amazing job cleaning carpets! Several times they have saved a carpet that we thought would have to be replaced, making us happy and our customers even happier!"
 

Jim Norman


"I've been having Smart Carpet cleaning our two high-rise buildings for the past 6 years. We were going to replace our older carpet years ago, but thanks to Smart Carpet's deep cleaning process, we expect to get another decade out of it. That's a savings of around $50,000!!!"
 

Photini Westover


"Had been misquoted on phone; honored quote at company expense. Now 4 months into cleaning, carpet (old) better by far than any other. Hire them with safety and assure that job will be perfectly done."
 

Nick Rogers


“After I saw a demo, I decided to give SMART Carpet Care a try. The process they use allows me to get new tenants moved in more quickly. The units are basically ready to go after they leave... ... SMART has really helped us out by responding to last minute requests. They get the job done even if it has to be done at night or the weekend. Their willingness to work with our schedule has been great. In one case we gave them 26 units on Monday and they were all cleaned by Wednesday. SMART’s process works so well that we now give all our problem carpets to them. Very bad carpets have been turned around and have become a non-issue. SMART has turned “trashed” units into units that our new tenants move into without complaint or problem.”
 

Dave & Arlene Thompson, Managers


“We recently had a problem with one of our 2 bedroom units. It had been cleaned by our carpet cleaning vendor and looked bad, bad enough that the owner of the company came out a second time to personally clean it but it still didn’t look good. I had Jason and Robert come over to see if they could make things better. After SMART cleaned half the unit I took a look and noticed nearly all the spots were gone and the carpet was nearly dry. (It also looked good a week later!). They also showed me a stack of dirty pads indicating all the soil that had been left behind by the other company. We hope to have them approved to do all our units soon.”
